Book Launch – Descriptions: a patient-led description of ME composed from the words of people with M.E.
Join Action for M.E. and artist, Alec Finlay, to hear the words and experiences of people living with M.E. Last year they worked together to ask people with M.E. about their life before and after M.E. Their responses were crafted by poet, Alec Findlay, into a found poem. This book is now being launched, sharing knowledge and understanding about this hidden, invisible illness. In the hope to raise awareness and to highlight the crossover of symptoms between M.E. and Long Covid. Action for M.E. will people an opportunity to learn more about this illness and how to support people living with it and similar energy limiting illnesses.
